WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAYS

Explores the meaning of life and suggests how best to live and love. -- IMDB

What a surprising little gem this comedy drama is. It starts out like a run-of-the-mill dysfunctional family going on a visit for the kids' grandfather's birthday. But when they arrive events take a dramatic turn - and we are treated to a delightful reflection on life and death. Billy Connolly is great as the grandfather dying of cancer and the supporting cast put on good turns. But the three children in this story are truly outstanding. This is a beautiful, celebratory, inspiring movie with a deep message about the need to accept all of us ridiculous humans for who we are. A joy to watch.
